Writing Mediumship

In what is known as "writing mediumship" the medium's hand is controlled

by the spirit, and is caused to write messages to those present, or to

answer questions propounded by some of those present at the circle. In

some quarters such writing is called "automatic writing," but inasmuch

as this last term is also applied to cases in which the hand of the

person writes a message telepathed by a living person, it would seem

that the old term "writing mediumship" is still the best one to use in

the cases in which the spirit control is using the hand of the medium

for the purpose of communication. The following statements made by

different mediumistic writers on this particular subject will prove

interesting and instructive to the young mediums seeking development

along the lines of this special phase of mediumship.
